Destiny 2 is a huge game that is difficult to master. And in some cases, the game will get in its own way and make things even harder.
You can, of course, simply play the game, follow the in-game directions, and have fun. But with the right tools, you can have an infinitely better time playing Destiny 2!
These apps, websites and YouTube channels are essential tools that will make your Destiny 2 experience even better:
Essentials: Inventory and character management
My go-to inventory manager, with DIM you can easily move items between characters and vault, create loadouts, see your active quests, and so much more. It’s free and works on any browser!
Also an inventory manager, Ishtar is a great DIM alternative that works on smartphones. This means you can transfer gear around, check your bounties, compare items and more, from the go.
Niris is a web designer also known as the “Destiny infographics guy”. Every week, he releases excellent infographics summarizing the Weekly reset, Xur’s inventory, Trials loot and more!
Other tools worth checking out:
- Braytech.org: A web app that covers everything. My favorite parts: Quests and Triumphs tracking.
- Destiny Sets: A web app to track what gear you already have, organized per themes/seasons.
- Find Xur (iOS): There are many apps and sites that track Xur, but this one is clean and functional. My personal favorite.
Destiny 2 LFG: Find people to play with
For some reason, Destiny 2 doesn’t have an in-game Fireteam finder. Luckily, this official companion app has a good LFG (looking for group) system, plus an inventory manager and quest tracker.
With close to 100,000 members, this SubReddit is one of the most engaged communities dedicated to helping you find people to play Destiny 2 with, be it to tackle challenging content or farm something.
Discord channels can be excellent LFG tools and the Destiny 2 PC LFG is the biggest one by far (so big it often crashes). It can be a little impersonal but you can always find someone to play anything at any time.
“Git Gud”: Awesome Destiny 2 YouTube channels
Other resources worth checking out:
- Datto on YouTube: Probably the biggest Destiny 2 content creator on YouTube. His Exotic quest guides are top notch.
- Apathettic on YouTube: A lesser-known channel, his guides and builds are great. I hope he keeps growing!
- Paul Tassi on Forbes: From all the big publications, Paul’s D2 coverage with Forbes is the most interesting, by far.

Data: Destiny 2 Stat trackers and Databases
Destiny Tracker has a massive database with everything that exists in Destiny 2, but on top of that, they are the best PVP stat tracker available. If you’re serious about PVP, you need to check them out.
Light.gg is another massive D2 database. But unlike Destiny Tracker, they seem to focus more on PVE and actual items in the game. If you’re looking for information about an in-game item, this is the place to start.
This is where the infamous Charlemagne Discord bot resides. If any of those words mean anything to you, just know that Warmind.io has a lot of extremely interesting data such as player numbers per activity, etc.
